1:06 am
about zimmerman and other stories. i'll introduce them all to you una moment. first, to the people i have been talking with about this over the last month. dina, holly hughes. zimmerman is asking trayvon martin's parents to forgive him. that is a lot to ask. could you forgive him? >> yes, but he didn't murder my child. >> as simple as that? >> it is as simple as that. we all like to believe we have that capability. come on, don. every one of us wants to say, i would be able to forgive. sitting here today, as i know myself, i think i could. but i'm not in their shoes. he didn't kill my child. >> this is a very difficult -- this has been a tragic case from the beginning. the thing is, trayvon's parents have been so dignified. so gracious. >> would you forgive him? >> it's tough for me right now. >> i don't know.
1:07 am
i don't think so right now. >> all right, dean? >> if it was my son, i couldn't. that apology wasn't for me or the family but for the public to get some sympathy on his side. that's what it was all about. >> stand by. thank you very much. up next, we're going to talk about this. why the puritanic attitude about the oldest profession on earth. talking about prostitution. are we stunned about men buying sex where it's legal? and who are we to judge our troops? does a picture tell a whole story? and this -- >> if you're not down with it, get the [ bleep ] off my channel. >> the king of all media under pressure to fill piers morgan's shoes. and to stop the backlash that he lost his edge. has howard stern jumped the shark? not in this economy. we also have zero free time,

1:10 am
colombian prostitutes and secret service agents are fodder for late night comedians this week. >> i feel somewhat responsible here. you see, the secret service was here last week to protect the first lady. and like anyone who gets close to my virility, they obviously got their manhood jacked up. it's called been man-jacked. i don't know if it's the same team here. it wouldn't be the first time a
1:11 am
visitor to this building had to seek professional relief after being here. because and this is true -- according to the fbi's phone records, eliot spitzer called a prostitute in the car right after leaving my studio. >> that was funny. not for the 23 agents and military people involved. this is an alleged incident. does this surprise us? i'm joined by author jeffrey robinson. former marine scott camille and holly hughes. and joining us in here in atlanta is gentleman mall anderson. are we surprised by this? should we be? >> i don't think there's any surprise at all. >> that simple. why? why do you say that? >> well, from my experience in war, taking pictures with people that we killed to show we killed those people was common practice. >> okay.
1:12 am
i'm talking about the secret service here. about the secret service, not about the afghanistan pictures. agents accused of buying sex this week. i'm wondering if you feel we should be surprised by this? >> i don't have an opinion. >> yeah. okay. >> i don't -- >> let's move on. let's talk to jeffrey robinson. you write about these things. what do you think? >> yeah, you should be surprised. shocked. this is behavior that is unacceptable. totally unacceptable by the secret service. these men are briefed to know better, they're overseas, representing the government. this should never have happened. i said previously in one interview, boys will be boys. i was criticized for excusing them. boys will be boys is a definition. what they did is inexcusable. totally inexcusable and no laughing matter for the secret service. >> holly? go ahead. >> i'm thinking here, what we should be shocked about and
1:13 am
ticked off about, quite frankly, is the timing of what they did. all right, fine, it's a legal thing, legal, not illegal. perfectly legal in colombia to hire a prostitute. do what you're doing on your own time. you jeopardize the safety of the president of the united states, his itinerary is on the desk. what makes you think one of these women is not la femme nikita? come on, seriously. that's what we should be worried about it the security risk. >> let's put this in perspective. first of all, there was no risk to the president of the united states. these men were not part of ppd. the presidential division. they were not there. they were there in a supplementary support function. they were not armed. they didn't have the radio equipment. if they had blackberries, they were supposed to be in their pants. normally their pants are supposed to stay on. they did not wknow what was happening. and the uniformed officers. one of them was the dog patrol.
1:14 am
at no point was the president in jeopardy. >> the president was in no danger. number one, this was legal. we expect the secret service to have exemplary service. if they make the news, it's for a bad thing usually or if they're investigating something that threatens the president. the secret service they're not supposed to get caught by the way. you're the secret service, okay. let's be real. secret service. how do you get busted in colombia, my man? >> if they had blackberries, they're supposed to be in their pants. guess what? their pants were around their ankles. i say it is a security risk not to mention a national embarra embarrassme embarrassment. >> they're supposed to uphold a certain standard. >> go ahead jeffrey. >> i'm wondering why -- >> it's an embarrassment. >> scott, go ahead. what did you say? >> i'm wondering why the media spends so much time on sex when there's so many important issues today? >> yeah, i think you're right. but sex is one of them. especially if the people accused
1:15 am
of having sex are the people supposed to be protecting the president of the united states. >> not only that, they're not paying for it. that's why this whole thing blew up. y'all, come on, let's face it. >> when we talk about the legalization of prostitution, this young lady went to a legitimate police officer instead of a pimp. where it was legal, she actually had the right to go to a police officer and protect herself. awe off course she did. it's called theft of services, don. seriously. >> we'll move on and get off of sex. i think that will make scott happy. up next, the outrage over troops posing with dead people. is that shock real or is it fake? >> don, where you at? >> no, no, no. i said -- listen to my question. i said people outside of politics and outside of the media. last week, conservatives tried their talking points. i shut them down. this week, it's the liberals' turn. fair warning, they won't get to spin either.

1:17 am
1:18 am
okay, war is hell. we see images of war, we judge before realizing what our soldiers are really up against. this week, it was u.s. troops posing with body parts of afghan bombers. our guests are all back now. i want to say, we're not condoning this by any means. we can't even begin sdwrund sta -- understand what it is look to be be -- we can't even begin to understand what it is like to be in a war zone.
1:19 am
why are we so quick to judge? first to scott camille, a former marine. why are we so quick to judge? we don't know what those men and women are up against, do we? >> we don't know what it's like being in combat unless you have been there. you're nitpicking talking about things like people posing with bodies. the real question should be, why are we at war in the first place? why are we killing so many people in the first place? the concern about posing with someone who is dead. seems to me, the fact that someone is dead and we're killing people is more important than what happens after they're dead. >> i think you're right about that. the fact is, we have those pictures. 18 of them of men and women in a battlefield posing with people who are dead. most people don't see that activity every day. if that leads people to understand what is going on in a war zone, or maybe why we're killing, that is a good next question. maybe this is the impetus to have that happen. >> the difficulty for me about these issues, don, we are stretched so thin. how long have we been at war? the circumstances -- we have put the military in in several regions.
1:20 am
i'm not justifying the pictures at all. but so tough when something like this happens when you have so many thousand, hundreds of thousand of people who served honorably, who served all over the country in difficult situations and then you have this happen. you know, who knows what happened with the guys days before? >> scott does have a good point. he says, why are we killing people? the subject is faux shock and awe. should we be more surprised we are in all of these wars? >> here's the great thing. scott hit the nail on the head. now we opened a dialogue. what are we talking about now? shouldn't we be more upset that we're out there killing people? >> we're still there. >> but it happens in all different professions. you have heard of black humor. surgeons playing rock music in the o.r. and operating on people. you see life and death every day, and in a combat zone, i'm not going to sit here and say, how dare you? because nobody sent me over there with a gun. thank god somebody else is willing to do it. no, you know what it does --
1:21 am
it calls attention to the fact that maybe we need to assess why we're there in the first place. maybe we need to get these folks help. they're in a place where they're trained to kill. it's kill or be killed. >> this is war. >> this is war, hello, it doesn't get more basic than that. stwhin take a soy when they take a picture, it's like showing you, i'm doing what you trained me to do. >> most people may be surprised, you're saying, why are we in a war zone? they might say, you're former military. it seems like you would understand that more than most. >> what i understand is what it is like to be in a war zone and i understand the behavior in a war zone. and i, i would say first of all, that war is really an institution made up of criminal behavior. when we as civilians want to solve our problems we are not allowed to murder people and burn their houses down. i don't see why war is an
1:22 am
acceptable mooaccept able means of conflict resolution and the majority of people that die are innocent civilians. >> jeffrey, under these particular circumstances, should we be judging our men and women in uniform so harshly? >> no, scott made a good point. and heap is very right about this. i served in the military. war is controlled insanity. and sometimes it's very easy to lose control. >> all right, thank you, guys. don't go anywhere. we have a lot to talk about. up next -- why these two people coming up have some explaining to do about president obama. you will see them after the break. ♪ what started as a whisper every day, millions of people choose to do the right thing. there's an insurance company that does that, too. liberty mutual insurance.

1:24 am
1:25 am
coming up, have some explaining to do at president obama. more of the stories you're talking about in a moment. first, the news you need to know right now. tonight, george zimmerman is behind bars. that could change soon. it may take until the middle of the week to come up with $15,000. 10% of the bond the judge set on friday. zimmerman is charged with second degree murder for shooting trayvon martin. new york police are tearing apart the former basement workshop of othneil miller. his lawyer insists the carpenter had nothing to do with the
1:26 am
disappearance of 6-year-old etan patz more than 30 years ago. the colombian prostitution scandal has claimed more careers. three more secret service employees have stepped down making it six to lose their jobs so far. altogether, 23 secret service and military personnel have been caught up in the controversy. so tonight we are cutting through all of the smack talking on this show, no matter what political side you are on. last week we invited on conservatives, a conservative panel. nobody pulled any punches. listen to this. >> it sick ends me when i hear some of the writers being used to describe conservative women. someone calls you see you next tuesday. if you're reporting it in the context of the story, you want people to know what is being said. >> otherwise it's disgusting. >> i have to say, i just got the acronym see you next tuesday. that was beyond me. >> no, all right. all right. >> this week, it's the liberals' turn.
1:27 am
maria cardona, a guest. you heard our conservative panel. bill mahr, and others have spewed about conservatives? >> i don't think so. ed schultz was reprimanded. i think suspend ford a ced for days when that happened. i think plenty of democrats and liberals, including myself, who talked about when bill maher did it. when anybody uses that language, it's beyond the pail. that should not be the kind of language we use in politics. i have condemned it when it happens on both sides. >> it's a political talking point for the right to say, oh, liberals don't speak out when their own do it? >> i do think that. and, and it has become something that they have tried to use against the president. and against the administration. i think that they need to look at what their own people are
1:28 am
doing. and, we're probably leading up to this. but you know -- ted nugent this week said awful things about the president. mitt romney said absolutely nothing about what the comments were. mitt romney's campaign sought the approval and the endorsement of ted nugent. >> you're jumping ahead with maria with the ted nugent conversation. we're going to talk about it. >> it was an obvious segue there. >> i want to play something from "the daily show." something they said about the presidential race. listen. >> but last week, rick santorum conceded. primary's over. general election on. all the firepower the right was wasting on each other has now been retrained on their actual opponent. like the democrats didn't realize they went from england to america where the traffic is now coming from the other direction. democrats got so comfortable going, there's nobody coming on the street. they don't realize the cars were [ bleep ] bam.
1:29 am
>> so, eric, you know he has got a point. he's got a point. the secret service scandal. soldiers posing with bodies in afghanistan. the gsa wasting taxpayer dollars. they're pouncing on it. the president and the democrats were caught offguard, it looks like, eric. >> four years in the white house, there's always going to be breaking news. there's always going to be news cycles. do i think anybody in november will remember the gsa accounting scandal? or things like that? i don't. it's clear the rom kn the romney campaign is clearly focusing on the obama administration and doing it in a dramatic way. and really cozying up to the right wing media. as we talked about, not just, not just, distancing himself from ted nugent and things like that. obviously, the general campaign is on. and it's funny that the republicans are playing hardball early. and they freak out when obama dares campaign for the white house.
1:30 am
>> let's talk about the president obama and the economy. treasury secretary timothy geithner made the talk show rounds. he said something he's said a lot. we've heard from this administration. >> the president inherited, again, as you know, the worst financial crisis since the great depression. the worst crisis since the great depression. when he came into office. a financial crisis caused by a shock larger than what kautz -- caused the great depression. >> he's been in office for three years. how much longer will we hear that line? can he run again on how bad bush was? bush has been all but invisible lately. >> i think you have to clarify what the administration is saying. they have not said that george bush, that the economy is george bush's fault. obviously, that's semantics. what they are doing, don, and i think is absolutely fair, is that they are laying the history
1:31 am
of what happened. and i think that it is a very important point to remind americans of the hole that this economy was in when president obama took office. he did not start at a level playing field. he did not start at zero. it is fair to remind americans of that. we have seen in polls, in some of the cnn polls that americans do understand that this president had a huge challenge when he walked into office. the majority don't blame him for that. and still blame bush. >> eric, listen, i have to move on. i have a short time with this. we're running long here. maria brought up ted nugent. ted nugent hasn't had a hit since 1977. since "cat scratch fever." a long time ago. he says crazy stuff. should mitt romney take responsibility for something ted nugent says? and should president obama take responsibility when a supporter of his says something that its out of line? >> that's a good point. i don't think people will vote
1:32 am
in november based on these little games of outrage. it was the romney campaign that two weeks ago went bonkers over a comment that hilary rosen made on cnn, for them to now take the nugent comments, which were off the charts and he has a history of hateful, disgusting, vile comments, for them to basically say, okay, we don't deal with entertainers, it's a pretty big double standard. awe mau reyea maria, i know you wanted to jump on this. go ahead, really quickly. >> and i think we have to be clear that the romney campaign sought ted nugent's endorsement. >> celebrated it. you didn't have obama going around looking for the endorsement of bill maher. and george shultz. >> last week, it was the conservatives. now the libs, the lefties have had their chance this week. we will have you back. eric, maria, thank you. have a good evening, all right. >> thank you, don. >> all right. after the break, we'll try to get to the bottom of why the tv show "the bachelor" is not

we hope you've noticed our saturday 10:00 p.m. show is different. we hope it's different. and some saturday night fun. let's look at what popped up in entertainment. i have comedian dean obeidallah in new york. he is a comedian, i guess, i don't know how funny he is. former nfl'er jamaal anderson and our legal eagle holly hughes. let's talk about the mel gibson rant. joe eszterhas said mel yelled at him. he was yelling at him a few weeks back at his home in costa rica. >> i go to work. you're getting paid. i'm not [ bleep ]. i am earning money for a filthy little [ bleep ] who takes advantage of me. >> they've been jabbing at each other in the media. and we're only hearing mel there. we want to be fair. but, you know there were the comments from nugent and then mel. they're both pretty much loud mouths. should we be surprised by this?
1:37 am
>> no. when mel got in trouble in california, that ran thin. it's unfortunate. this was a guy who was a tremendously talented actor. it's hard now to watch some of the great movies that you love when you know all this stuff and rants and different behavior that have come out. come on, dude, really? >> dean? >> i said the same thing to owners of comedy clubs. i have to be honest -- mel gibson, he's making charlie sheen look better. charlie sheen looks like the employee of the month. when you look at the rant of mel gibson. there is no defense for it. for mel, it's thursday, or friday. he has a history of angry outbursts. ted is completely different. that isn't angry. that was political rhetoric that got to the level of being a crime prohibiting a threat against the president. mel is crazy. ted nugent is not. that's the difference. >> are you sure about that? >> are you sure if ted nugent is
1:38 am
crazy, legally crazy, i may be prosecuted for that. >> i don't know. look at alec baldwin. women don't do this. that's the interesting thing. snooki, they get drunk, they fall down. you don't see these angry, crazy rants. this is something men do. >> why don't we let a woman speak to that. do women do this? >> no. if a woman is going to say something, she's going to make sure she's not taped. it will be a catfight in the bathroom. a little slapping. somebody's weave may get left on the ground. then it is over. you know what? mel gibson has not gone off the rails he has jumped the track. i know we are kidding around and everything. let's face it. get to the bottom of it. it's racist rhetoric. it's something we started at the top of the show going, this is hateful, this is horrible. some of it is really funny. i don't mean the rhetoric. the fact that he's over the top. >> we got it. i have to move on. i want to get to this. the television show, "the bachelor" being sued. see if you, if you can tell why. look at this. >> oh, my god.
1:39 am
>> will you marry me? >> the end is in sight. everything that i dreamed of could be coming true. thank you. >> will you accept this rose? >> thank you. >> will you marry me? >> oh, my gosh. yes. >> what do you think? can you figure it out? a lot of white faces there. in 23 seasons there has never been a black bachelor or bachelorette. now two african-americans are filing a class action lawsuit saying they didn't get their shot. do they have a point. >> this is outrageous. i can't believe there is a topic. there are absolutely no african-american bachelors or bachelorettes. we don't exist. >> maybe they're too smart to go on the show. >> there are no single black people? >> it's a joke there hasn't been a single one. >> maybe they just don't want to embarrass themselves. okay. this could be a good move on their part. how do we know they're not too smart? >> you're missing.
1:40 am
there is a lot of diversity. all different shades of white people there. some offwhite, some with a tan. some didn't shave. how come -- no black person, i'm muslim. why no muslims on there? they could marry four women, great show at the end. four wives. >> maybe they don't need to go on tv to get a date? how about that? maybe they have enough in real life. come on. >> i spoke to someone. they said -- this is what they say. i don't know if this is true. can you imagine having a black bachelor with women of all different ethnicities? and having him pick and choose? they think the audience would be uncomfortable by that or by having a black bachelorette and the same thing. i don't know if that is true. >> that would -- that's shock -- that's surprising to me. >> i am with jamaal. we see interracial couples on our comedy shows, our drama shows. this is -- aren't we past this? seriously? >> the show's been on ten years. clearly a problem.
1:41 am
ten years. 23 seasons. "the bachelor" and "bachelorette" combined. not one person of color? i used to be a lawyer. this is discrimination. it will be off the case for abc. >> my question -- how do you have ten years and 23 seasons? that is interesting to me. i kind of know. it used to be one year, one season. all right, we're done. up next -- >> if you're not down with it, get the [ bleep ] off my channel. >> the king of all media under pressure to fill piers morgan's shoes. and to stop the backlash he has lost his edge. has howard stern jumped the shark? utrition. like the dual-defense antioxidants in our food that work around the clock... supporting your dog's immune system on the inside... while helping to keep his skin and coat healthy on the outside. with this kind of thinking going into our food... imagine all the goodness that can come out of it. just one way we're making the world a better place... one pet at a time. purina one smartblend.
